to offend latinos almost as much. that's damaging in this campaign. that's going to be devastating in four years and eight years and beyond if all they are left with is white men in the republican party and it's not going to win elections for you. >> isn't it more important, melissa, when you look at the sense of diversity and the quest for inclusion in this country of whites, blacks, latinos, guys gays, lesbians, straights, that the method that we're moving toward is an electorate that they are away from in this kind of strategy? >> the demographic diversity, so what you show there is completely accurate but this electorate is a different one. it's part of why we've seen intense voter suppression effort, because the idea is, if you can shrink that electorate out, push out young voters as the voter suppression efforts are doing, if you can push them out, then you may get exactly the kind of electorate where the gop could win. but more than that -- and this is critically important, white americans no longer like the idea, for the most part, of being in a party that is lilly white and associ
. the early vote, the latino vote, the women vote and what will tip the race? joining me is krystal ball and erin mcpike, reporter for real clear politics. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> krystal, let's start with the early voting numbers. these are promising right now, at least from the start? >> yeah, very encouraging and you highlighted nevada in particular. they just started early voting. democrats turned out more democratic voters on the first day than they did back in 2008 so signs are looking really good there. it's a slas particular test of the air power versus, you know, the boots on the ground, the classic grassroots and it's excelling in today even though the obama campaign itself has actually outfund raised the romney campaign.raised the romney campaign. despite that monetary difference. >> erin mcpike is in ohio. erin, a new quinnipiac poll, of the voters, president obama got 50% of the vote and romney 39. >> the democrats are very energized by early voting. of course, they won a bunch of court ruling. i because they have won the early vote to conti
, south america, immigration. the latino vote has gone overwhelmingly in every poll for the president. president obama, 70%. mitt romney, 25%. this vote, if it comes out -- particularly if it comes out this lopsided, could be critical in some of the key swing states. >> absolutely. and in this case, turnout is what matters. this is where the democrats get out to turn votes are key. you want the latino vote out there for him. romney did not do himself any favors in the primaries and has not made up much ground. the key is getting these voters to the poll. >> how would you get them out, jamal? >> i think the democrats -- i was down in tampa a couple of weeks ago and i saw what they were doing in terms of volunteers and they are telling me that they have better votes than in 2008. they are confident about what they are going to do. what happened last night that i thought was funny was how mitt romney talked about mali. he kept going back to mali as if someone gave him that fact. i felt like i was listening to myself in children filling college and filling myself. he was pouring himself i
is robyn wright, former labor secretary and economic's professor and teresa, president and ceo of latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for being here tonight. >> thank you, reverend. >> senator reich, let me start with you. you've been writing an article about how skewed is. is the word getting out to voters? >> undoubtedly, the voters are getting a sense that romney is not on their side. it's not just the policies and tax plan that gives the rich a huge benefit, at the same time cutting most of the programs that are for the poor and middle class and medicare, medicaid, and so forth. but it's also side remarks. for example, the videotape of romney saying he doesn't care about or he's not worried about 47% of americans who are pampered and who are not taking responsibility for themselves. it's romney himself. i think in the debates romney has two big problems that he's got to try to overcome. one is mathematics. he's got to show what loophole he's going to close. the second is authenticity. he's got to show that authentically he's someone that cares about average working people
here telling latinos you need i.d. and in other states we must confront confusion distortions and voter suppression methods wherever we find it, not just to protect our candidates, whoever they may be. but to protect everyone's right to vote, whether they vote your way, my way, every vote must be protected and every vote is the american way and we must, in these 19 days, make sure we do that above and beyond all questions. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

, african-american, or latino. all key democratic voting blocs. and so far primary voters who have voted outnumber republicans by 28,000. and that's despite repeated attempts and voter suppression from ohio's secretary of state. but there are still a lot of things to worry about across the country, including a former republican employee actually throwing out voter form. we'll talk about that coming up.

latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> david, what do these latest tapes tell you about governor romney? >> i'm glad you played that second tape. if you listen to it carefully and think about it for a moment, it says that mitt romney wants america to compete with china for having an environment more hospitable for business, but why do businesses go to china? they go because there are low wages and weak labor protections and nonexistent environmental standards. so, is he suggesting that's what he wants for american workers and american consumers? i mean, it's not a well thought out idea. certainly nothing he will talk about in the campaign. and since we're in the closing days, probably nothing he'll be pressed on. but he's saying, hey, guys, we have to be as bad as china in order to get businesses to come here rather than go there. >> and it's also a mischaracterization of his position and the president's. another thing that struck me is when i heard mrs. romney at the fund-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country.
and ceo of vote latino and msnbc contributor. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thank you. >> joe, get these right wingers a handkerchief, please. >> it was four, five, six years ago wining was the thing they said we did. i used to have these debates and they would say, oh, you're wining, you're wining. and now they are here once again. but they do this. they always accuse the other side of doing something that they are actually doing. look, you know, counting three minutes more, well, somebody said that mitt romney used more words than barack obama did. it's absolutely absurd and whenever you -- you know when you've lost the debate is when you start looking at the style. i'm surprised they didn't criticize the tie he was wearing but they knew they lost. so this is how they deal with it. >> that may be neck. maria, have you ever seen anything like this before? >> no. and i think exactly what we're saying is it was all smoke and mirrors. canned dee candy crowley fact checked them. they know how high the stakes are. look, romney actually had less talking time than the last d
